There’s been much talk about keeping Jan Vertonghen at left back throughout the season after the Belgian covered so comfortably for BAE against Manchester United and Aston Villa. With Steven Caulker emerging at centre half, it’s thought that Jan could remain on the left side for now but the player himself seems keen to switch back to his original position.
“At Tottenham I play left-back because of injuries. Marc Wilmots (Belgium’s manager) likes that perhaps, but I’ve got other ambitions,” Vertonghen said.
Jan is one of a number of Spurs players preparing for the long international weekend.
“The match in Serbia will become one of the hardest, but everyone knows how important this is and is very sharp. We’ll go for the three points, but must be sharp in the defence,” he added.
Vertonghen might look equally comfortable in either position but the player himself is certain as to where he wants to play.
